Following today's announcement of a new movies deal with Warner Bros, Sky has now snapped up a range of live Test cricket from Australia (2012-2016), South Africa (2012-2020) and India (2012-2018).
The deals cover Test cricket from every nation that appears in the countries, including six England overseas tours.
These new agreements run in addition to Sky's existing agreements to England's home Tests, one-day internationals, Twenty20 international matches, ICC events, county and women's matches.
The four-year deal with Cricket Australia begins with the Ashes tournament next year and also includes England's 2015 triangular series visit.
Over the period covered, Australia will also host South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, India and New Zealand at home, and Sky will further cover Australia's domestic Twenty20 Big Bash League.
Sky's longer eight-year deal with South Africa includes England's next two overseas tours, in 2015 and 2019, along with Test series against New Zealand, Pakistan, India, Australia, West Indies, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, plus domestic Twenty20 matches.
"Test cricket has always been core to Sky Sports and it continues this winter with the start of a six-year deal with India. Then, as England look to take the Test crown back from South Africa our viewers can see their next two series in South Africa."
The Board of Control for Cricket in India has granted Sky a six-year deal covering the England tour of 2016/17, along with matches against Australia, West Indies, South Africa, Sri Lanka and New Zealand.
"These deals give our viewers great live cricket guaranteed for years ahead; our cricket schedule is simply stronger than ever with England at home and on tour, the leading ICC events, the major Test nations and a depth of county cricket, a lineup of live cricket right through the calendar," Francis said.
"Sky Sports has never offered greater depth and breadth of coverage and this series of rights renewals gives us the strongest lineup of live sport for our viewers to watch at home or on the move."
Sky has also recently agreed new long-term deals to the Premier League, the Champions League, the Football League, the Scottish Premier League, the NFL, Spain's La Liga, and the Heineken Cup.
